The bro and I went to a brown bag lunch this week regarding the Central Subway project.  This is a transit project that will cost several billion dollars (yes, that was a billion with a “B”) to connect Caltrain and Chinatown by cutting right in the heart of downtown with stations in SOMA and Union Square. 

They’ve been talking about this thing for at least a decade, and from what we heard from the meeting, they are shooting for a completion date of 2016.  Geez… My son will almost be ten by then.  Now THAT I can’t imagine.
